    Oh Apple...

    Everyone said all along they were doing this. They lied. Now the class action lawsuits begin. If they lied about this, what else do they lie about?

    The $29 battery replacement includes installation?

    new battery + installation = replacement?

    And ... the battery status OS update falls short since the user is not given the ability to opt-out of the degraded phone performance.

    These shenanigans smell a lot like VW's "dieselgate". Shame on the fruit boyz.

    I love my iPhone 6 plus 16 GB, iPhone 7 plus 256 GB & my Ipad 2 Air 128 GB, they have good products, no doubt about that, but slowing down old iPhones(and how old), come on!:)

    Couldn't agree more! The installation prices will probably skyrocket now just to cover the cost of lowering the new battery prices. Makes up for 'losses'...

    $29 for battery and $21 for installation that equals to 50 USDs.
